Treatments Offered

  • Nail care
  • Corns
  • Callus/hard skin
  • Verrucae

    There are several different treatment options for verrucae:

    • Most will be painless to get rid of using salicylic acid and or silver nitrate over a few sessions.
    • Some may require the use of Monochloroacetic acid as well as the above. This is a bit more aggressive but very successful against the more stubborn verrucae.
    • Cryotherapy (freezing )
    • For the rare very resistant verrucae or for those who just want it gone as soon as possible there is electrosurgery. This technique uses an electrical current to remove the verrucae. A local anaesthetic injection at the site of the verrucae is required.
    • Swift Microwave therapy provides an effective alternative to older treatments. It requires no anaesthetic or dressings and each treatment takes less than 5 seconds. More information>>
  • Diabetic foot care
    PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE

    Due to the reduced circulation and sensation in the feet that can come about with both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes it is very important to have your feet checked regularly by a Podiatrist.

    If you find it at all difficult to cut your own toenails or look after your feet in general you should not attempt to. Trying to, could easily lead to serious preventable problems. For example, a cut foot or an ingrowing nail.

  • Athletes Foot
  • Fungal nails
  • In-growing toenails

    In-growing toenails can often be solved by palliative treatment to correct the incorrectly cut nail or recent trauma to it.

    When this does not solve the problem and it keeps reoccurring then nail surgery is the best option.

    This involves a local anaesthetic injection in to the toe. Then the offending side of the nail is removed and an acid is applied to prevent that side of the nail growing again thus permanently solving the in-growing nail.

    Once healed although the nail will be slightly narrower it will still look like a normal nail.
